The Class of 2024 hosted the annual Homecoming Dance in October and did an admirable job.

The annual Homecoming Dance, hosted by the sophomore class on Oct. 7, lived up to its hype.

For starters, there were many cool decorations, such as an enchanted forest backdrop that changed colors, which was unique and unseen in previous homecomings. The decorations were plentiful, making  it clear that the sophomores put a lot of work into the decorations for the event.

However, there were also some things that could’ve been improved. 

For example, the ticket prices were too high. Tickets were priced at $10 at the door, or $9 per person and $16 per couple beforehand, but there were two outstanding issues with this.

The first issue was the prices were too high for a dance without deejay or a dance floor. I understand that inflation has impacted the ticket prices, but it should not exceed $5 to attend a simple school dance. 

Another issue was the lack of ticket presales. Before the dance, tickets were supposed to be on sale at $9 a person and $16 per couple, but there was little-to-no communication on where to purchase the tickets. There should have been more announcements or an email notifying students that the tickets were on sale in the cafeteria until Thursday, Oct 5.

This resulted in lengthy line at the door.

Aside from these small issues, the Class of 2026 still did a good job of hosting a fun and enjoyable homecoming dance. The song selection, the food and drink selection, and the decorations were all solid, especially seeing that it was the first dance that the sophomore class hosted.
